As many in Massachusetts are well-aware, divorce often involves a lot of complicated issues that are not easy to resolve. Frequently, there are contentious issues relating to the division of marital property and the equitable division of assets. This is especially true in a high net-worth divorce where the financial assets involved may be exceedingly difficult to unravel.
Those involved in or seeking a divorce may be interested to learn that actress Olivia Wilde recently finalized her divorce. The 27-year-old actress married a man with whom she eloped when she was 18. However, the two separated earlier this year after being married for eight years. Additional information concerning what lead to the separation -- including if it was for irreconcilable differences or for some other reason -- was not available.
The divorce was finalized when a Los Angeles Superior Court judge signed the necessary papers in late September. Although a news report did not list any details about the divorce agreement, it presumably involved a complex division of assets. Even over the course of eight years, couples accumulate items such as shared bank accounts and shared residences that are not always simple to split 50-50.
However, the difficulty with dividing marital property in an equitable fashion is not limited to just high net-worth divorces. In any divorce in Massachusetts and elsewhere, those involved may well benefit from seeking the advice of an experienced divorce attorney. The attorney may be able to ensure not only that the final divorce agreement is fair, but may also help with navigating the often confusing and intimidating area of divorce law.
